On Saturday, Carmen Danielle Morris, 23, was struck in the head by a bullet. An eight-year-old boy picked up a rifle around 4:30 p.m. in her East Texas home. He then fired a shot that went through the door and struck her in the head.
The child was in another room with the woman's husband, who was cleaning weapons. The boy was the little brother of the woman's husband. The couple's sons, aged two and five, were in the home at the time of the shooting.
The incident took place on the 200 block of Anderson County Road 1370. A friend of the woman, Aerial Rios, said "It appeared she was an amazing mother and loved her husband and children very much."
An online fundraiser was set up to help pay for funeral costs.
